Naveen Bansal

Head Instructor
Naveen Bansal holds a Ph.D. in Statistics from the University of Pittsburgh and currently is a Wehr Endowed professor at Marquette University. He has been passionate about math since his childhood and loves to teach math as a hobby and in his profession. He believes that it is the frame of mind that determines a child's ability to understand math (or any other subject). Fortunately, every child can be repositioned with a frame of mind in order to learn math in the correct way. He is married to Anu Bansal and has two grown-up kids.
